KMS server – WTF?

2012.06.28

Again about basics.

Turns out, that new graduates of MCSE2003 (yes, they are still people who learn it 🙂  ) told that KMS is “license server, separately installed and required to activate Open (Volume or whatsoever) Licensed Software”.. OMG.

On new installed server with KMS key, under Administrator user:

cscript c:\Windows\System32\slmgr.vbs /ipk XXXXX-YYYYY-ZZZZZ-QQQQQ-TTTTT

+ enter

Result:

Microsoft (R) Windows Script Host Version 5.7
Copyright (C) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

Installed product key XXXXX-YYYYY-ZZZZZ-QQQQQ-TTTTT successfully.

Now Go to Computer – right click – Go down – Activate online. Done.

In case of no internet- run:

C:\Windows\system32\slui.exe 4

Choose “Other ways” Choose Telephone. Go on…

p.s. Special for U, David… 🙂
